Global Cold Chain Alliance Publishes Directory
The Global Cold Chain Alliance Partners have expanded and renamed their annual directory of resources for the cold chain industry.
The 2008 Directory is the largest and most comprehensive directory of resources in the worldwide cold chain industry. It is titled the Global Cold Chain Directory to encompass all of the Global Cold Chain Alliance Partners.
These partners include the "Core Partner" organizations-the International Association of Refrigerated Warehouses (IARW), the World Food Logistics Organization (WFLO), the International Refrigerated Transportation Association (IRTA) and the International Association for Cold Storage Construction (IACSC).
Members of each of these organizations will receive the directory along with thousands of food companies that regularly use the cold chain resources and services listed in the directory.
The Alliance also includes a range of additional Affiliate Partners, Supporting Partners, and Strategic Partners that encompass all aspects of the diverse cold chain industry. For example, many associations that represent users of cold chain services, food companies that use these services, and trade press that report on the industry are among these partners. All are included in the directory to provide easy linkages to all segments of the industry.
Within its six color-coded sections, food manufacturers, distributors and retailers will find an international selection of cold storage warehouses, refrigerated transportation companies, cold storage design experts and companies charged with providing support services to the cold chain industry. It also includes an index that makes it easy to find any company or association.
"When we formed the Global Cold Chain Alliance this past year, we knew that this directory would be one of the most recognizable and widely-used benefits," says Bill Hudson, the Alliance's president and CEO. "The enhancements we made this year add tremendous value to the directory, and we know it will be used by members and cold chain industry customers alike."
The directory is available free of charge to food manufacturers, grocers, food service employees, trucking companies, libraries, associations, trade press and government bodies. To request a copy, visit www.gcca.org and follow the link on the home page.
